My post on marathon training tech. (Oh and you can sponsor me here: http://virginmoneygiving.com/IanMcKee)
 
Training for a marathon is a tech-y business these days, at least it is doing it the +Ian McKee way.

I wrote a flimsy argument for why being a fan of Apple and Chelsea FC is kind of similar.

Week one of #LondonMarathon2015 training was a slog whilst recovering from a stupid cold.
I’ve decided I’m going to do a weekly blog on each week’s training, to keep track of how each week’s gone. I spent much of New Year’s Eve putting my training schedule into a pretty spreadsheet, and was going to add notes to each week’s column, but then thought why not just post them here? Anyway, …

Liking this idea. 
 
#PRstack is a crowdsourced project to characterise modern workflow and third-party tools that I kicked off last week. It'd be great if you could help out http://wadds.co/1DChVTO

Been to a few #gigs recently and not finding time to post thoughts on the old blog. Managed to get a few down for this one from Monday. #music #theantlers #bristol
Mondays are my day in the office, and my office is in London (Kingston, technically). It’s a 4.30am start to catch a train at 6. Many of my mornings on the train are soundtracked by The Antlers. There’s something about their music that sounds excellent as you’re speeding through countryside in the dark early hours. …

I actually can't stand running. And yet, I run.
I remember being around 12 years old and contemplating why I put myself forward for cross country running at school. It wasn’t really a forté of mine. I was a decent sprinter, but not really competitive running over any distance longer than 200 metres. I tended to finish well and place OK in races, mainly …

Week two of London Marathon training was slightly less dreadful than week one. #running   #londonmarathon  
Well, week two of training was a lot better than week one, not that that’s saying much. Still suffering the very tail end of the cold (a cough that will just not sod off) so still not totally optimal, but better. Tuesday was pretty much my first midweek longish run, I’ve only ever run 14km max on …

I wrote a review of former TechCrunch writer Jason Kincaid's book. In summary: a great guide for tech startup founders, with one or two caveats.

I am not very happy about the way Thom Yorke's released his new album. Not very happy at all. 
I understand that the distribution model for the music industry is going through a transition period at the moment. Streaming is its difficult adolescent years, still trying to work out what it really is and making some poor decisions for the purposes of experimentation. Which means that perhaps I shouldn’t begrudge artists doing a bit of experimentation …
